I have a new idea about how sports started in the world. Yes, there might be other records. This is just one of the new concepts.

History of sports is related to development of civilization. Primitive  people used to live nomadic and lonely life. When agriculture began, society began. Now the society needed ruler. How to choose a ruler? This question remained as a puzzle for a long time.

Discussion began in many societies. Different societies of the world brought out different solutions. People thought that a ruler should be powerful to safeguard people and state. So they firstly gave priority to wrestling. Some societies gave recognition to running. In course of time when the system of choosing a ruler by wresting, running etc became common, people started doing lots of practices. In the long run, their practices got formal recognition of sports.
